Is this Britain's' worst tourist attraction?

A ferris wheel in Dudley has been described as "Britain's worst tourist attraction" because of its panoramic views of the town.

The 35 metre big wheel, nicknamed the Dudl-eye, promises a "birds-eye view of the regeneration of the town centre, including the zoo and castle".

Some residents have complained about seeing little more than rooftops and concrete.

Dudley resident and local shop owner, Dave Carter, told BBC Radio 5 live Daily's Peter Allen that the wheel has had a positive effect on the town.

He said: “Our takings are up 30%, I don’t know who has branded it the worst tourist attraction in Britain. What would people expect to see from the top of a wheel in Dudley?”
